Boyan Slat - Marine Litter Extraction Project

TECH 1310 boyanslatmarineprojectWe all know that the technological marvels we created in this world have inspired awe and still do today.  One of those inventions is plastic, which is a marvel. Created to keep items clean, keep perishables fresh, and much more. We've also created a problem by storing water in plastic bottles, created wrappers and wrappers for items that really don't need them, and which are eventually thrown away into our ecosystem getting into our rivers, lakes, and oceans.

Young Boyan Slat and his team are working to create a solution to cleaning up our oceans of plastic waste called the Marine Litter Extraction Project.


“Secret” 3G Intel Chip Gives Snoops Backdoor PC Access

Technology 1013 Paul Joseph Watson. Intel Core vPro processors contain a “secret” 3G chip that allows remote disabling and backdoor access to any computer even when it is turned off. 

Although the technology has actually been around for a while, the attendant privacy concerns are only just being aired. The “secret” 3G chip that Intel added to its processors in 2011 caused little consternation until the NSA spying issue exploded earlier this year as a result of Edward Snowden’s revelations.

Hitachi Develops World's Smallest RFID Chip The Japanese giant Hitachi has developed the world's smallest and thinnest Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) chip. Measuring only 0.15 x 0.15 millimeters in size and 7.5 micrometers thick, the wireless chip is a smaller version of the previous record holder - Hitachi's 0.4 x 0.4 mm "Micro-Chip". The company used semiconductor miniaturization and electron beam technology to write data on the chip substrates to achieve this decrease in size. The new chips have a wide range of potential applications from military to transportation, logistics and even consumer electronics.


3D Printers to make Human Replacement Parts

Technology 0313 For Joseph Vacanti, the quest to build new organs began after watching the death of yet another child. In 1983, the young surgeon was put in charge of a liver transplantation program at Boston Children’s Hospital in Massachusetts. His first operation was a success, but other patients died without ever being touched by a scalpel. “In the mid-80s, kids who were waiting for organs had to wait for a child of the same size to die,” says Vacanti. “Many patients became sicker and sicker before my eyes, and I couldn’t provide them with what they needed. We had the team, the expertise, and the intensive care units. We knew how to do it. But we had to wait.”
